Ht. 5'4", Start: 170 lb, Today: 143 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 90 lb - I have a swimsuit recommendation--at Macy's the other day I saw this really cool suit. It was a one piece, but it had one strap, and this cool gold buckle. It's nice, because it's pretty without being a bikini...I totally want one.

Ht. 5'6", Start: 271 lb, Today: 216 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - A self-esteem booster for the ladies: When I was at my heaviest (and before and after that, too!), I felt miserable because I couldn't find fashionable clothes in my size. If you gals haven't checked out Lane Bryant, you should! It's a little pricey, but the clothes are fabulous and trendy and made to flatter full-figured women. Also, the people are very nice and extremely helpful...I always leave that store feeling like a supermodel. AND the women who work there are plus-size, too! I always get lots of compliments on my clothes, and it makes me actually feel a little better to mention a store that my friends can't shop at, instead of the other way around. They even have bras, underwear, and pajamas. And accessories. It's amazing, and it's just what I needed to feel beautiful while trying to reach another goal. Just because you aren't happy with your weight doesn't mean you have to feel ugly while you're trying to change it! www.lanebryant.com. Check it out, you'll be glad you did!

Ht. 5'7", Start: 187 lb, Today: 138 lb (BMI %tile: 61), Goal: 110 lb - Ok,so does 170 cm equal 5 foot 6 or 5 foot 7?
I always mix that up.Anyway.
So for my party i went shopping for a skirt,like first skirt I wore in years.My pants/skirt size use to be XXXL somethimes XXL so I basicly couldnt
find anything.
Now Im an L in pants/skirts and S in shirts.
But Im still not happy about the way I look in skirts.
I tried out this lovely grey skirt,that kinda looks like a tutu and I looked like a bell in it.
I was so imbarassed when I was putting it back on a shell and the cashier was staring at me.
I have this stubborn hip fat that no other girl does,even some 200 lb girls wear size M or S in pants.
My hips are 39 inches.Without the fat they would be 33 inches :( I could even try modeling if I get this stubborn fat off.
So I ended up buying high waist skirt,but I lied better that grey tutu.Well,Im going dieting again,hopefully it will come of :)

Ht. 5'2", Start: 141 lb, Today: 133 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 118 lb - I went back to school shopping and i got really fustrated cause nothing looks good on me. I'm a size 9 and it drives me crazy cause when i went to wet seal the pants were way to tight on me and they didnt have bigger sizes on the pants i wanted plus i like to use large on the tee shirts because i want my shirts to be a little bit baggy for it won't show my stomach but now when i wear tee shirts my stomach shows really bad. I'm losing weight but yet my stomach looks big. And my thighs look humugus in my pants. It's disgusting

Ht. 5'5", Start: 200 lb, Today: 160 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 130 lb - ok so i have read a few of the stories below and i have a few sugestions. Now i no that we all want those juinoir sizes but lets be real. They arnt made for anyone with a figure at all. Go to the misses or womens. I love to get shirts in juinors but they just dnt look right. I have a boobs! and they r made for girls the are a cups so they dnt work. And they all have cuts misses stuff to look at. Now in jeans i go for a mid rise type of juinors. Arizons fit me really well. but i lost weight and now levis fit super good.
Lastly DO NOT PAY ATTENION TO THE SIZE!!!! come on they will say its a 0 if u will buy it. all diffrent types of clothing will have a diffrent size so dnt worry about it. Best of luck!

Ht. 4'6", Start: 249 lb, Today: 249 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - it's soooooo bad to go to the beach for me, because my big bro is normal sized, he's 16, and we go to this exclusive beach club, where ALL the girls there wear bikinis except the lifeguards, and even they find some way of showing off their perfect bodies. it's SOOOOOOO embarrassing when i went shopping in the mall at hollister, my bro went in to shop, and i nervously asked if they had bathing suits in my size, and the lady gave me this smirk, and said, sorry, i don't think so. maybe torrid has something. and my cheeks turned red, and i almost ran out of the store. she was just trying to be nice, but then i went to this other store, and my parents told me they wouldn't buy the bikini i wanted unless i came out and showed them, and i figured it might not be that bad, and went out of my stall, and some girl STARTED SNICKERING! so, i went to the beach in an old one peice and a shirt on top. i can't even wear tankinis because my belly won't stay in them!

Ht. 5'6", Start: 206 lb, Today: 182 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 175 lb - TIPS* *JeAnS
1.buy dark wash jeans(light wash colors like the almost white ones dont flater thunder thighs at all and darker colors make you look slimmer and sexy and they are over all more classy) 2.muffin top! ( this is a big NONO, girls if you have a little bit more up top dont buy low rise jeans! they will do nothing for you but give you a muffin top! try a midrise waste) 3.skinny jeans (some big girls can pull off the skinny jean look but keep in mind if you are not happy with the size of your butt or thighs then these are not the jeans for you,,if you waant jeans simmilar to the skinny jean look then go for a slim boot cut) 4.lenght ( now the lenght of your jeans should be touching the floor but not making you trip all over the place when ya walk) 5. butt pockets ( ALWAYS HAVE BUTT POCKETS ON THE OUT SIDE OF THE JEAN! it will make your botty look smaller and more formed. and...

I wear a 9-10 in teen clothes and I hate turning around to see my thunder thighs and flubbr stomach. And also, I hate how you can't really wear short shorts when you're fat. They always look really really bad. I want to be stylish, but it isnt working.
